Very good and knowledgeable professor. But also very systematic and organized professor. If you do all work the ways he wants, I guarantee you will get full score.

Was very fair. Took the time to explain the material. Challenged in a fun way. Made an otherwise dull subject very interesting. Bedrock Community College. Hope your doing good, Bambam!

His class is extremely boring!!! Besides, his assignments are very confusing, even the TA is confused by his damn assignments!!! Moreover, he is always not available!!! Just check out his office, always closed and always that "neat"!!! He spends all his time hanging around the campus doing nothing!!!

Comment:
Useless. Fields all questions, grading, and TEACHING to the TA. Actually began a class in week 3 with "How many of you regularly send e-mails?" Too old, too out of it, and too lazy. No wonder he doesn't publish. Can't program his own assignments of clearly state their requirements. Exams are long, lecture attendance didn't help. Go to lab!

Comment:
The professor is amazingly helpful, although some skills are learned on the day an assignment is due. The issue with the class is mainly that there is tons of programming and it is hard to understand quickly. My 1st experience with programming. Spent upwards of 20 hours on homework, tests take 1 to 2 hours, easy to understand if hw was done tho.

Easy 1 credit class. One paper, due the 1st part of semester. Rest is classroom discussion, no tests. Classroom discussion is easy and free flowing, very laid back. Good, relaxing class.

Comment:
If you have any programming language prior to attending this class it should be a breeze for you. If not, use the book and read outside of what is assigned (google works wonders) and you should be fine. Tests aren't too difficult, and he gives a huge curve on both of them. Projects are, for the most part, well organized. Nice guy too.

Comment:
He covers the material, but the lectures are really boring; he doesn't really give any modern day examples and clearly hasn't been out of academia in quite a while (if ever). Tests were pretty easy although the midterm was tight on time. Unfortunately, to know what's on the test you basically have to sit through the classes.

Boring lectures. Programming projects are well defined and not too difficult. Midterm and final were not too hard.
